KIRKUS REVIEW

Limited this, to 850 copies, and a very special item in this first collection of short stories by an Irish writer acclaimed by Dunsany. They show insight, subtlety, distinction; with one exception they are not of the fey school, but are psychological in interest, in handling, ironic in conclusion. The girls lived off the dunghill and were repelled by it; the man thought of marriage in his forties,- too late; the girl who had three fatherless children; the woman whose beauty brought only suspicion. Finished technique -- marking the introduction of a new writer.
